Reuters has a report today mentioning that Mika Hakkinen has 'hinted' that he would like Nigel Mansell as a team-mate this year. Hakkinen is alleged to have said that he would like a 'quick, experienced driver alongside him' without mentioning Mansell by name. It could well be argued by some people that Brundle fits this description as well, although not to the same extent as Mansell.

The report then quotes McLaren-Mercedes spokesman, Norman Howell, as stating : "It's no mystery that Nigel has been at our headquarters recently. He is one of the drivers we are in touch with. I can't elaborate. Discretion is a must at this point of negotiation."

Howell also mentioned that the car would be ready by mid-February. Peter
